TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Kuomintang chairman and presidential candidate Eric Liluan Chu will visit the United States from November 10 to 16, the ruling party announced Tuesday.

His Democratic Progressive Party counterpart, Tsai Ing-wen, made a similar tour of the US last spring which was widely hailed as a triumph. She met with top politicians and academics while also visiting government offices, a rarity for Taiwanese leaders due to the absence of official diplomatic relations and to protests from China.

The details of Chu’s itinerary were not immediately known, but it was believed to include the White House and the State Department, prominent think tanks and meetings with the Overseas Taiwanese community on both sides of the country. Washington, D.C., New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco were believed to be included in the one-week voyage.     [FULL  STORY]
